I don't know why exactly, but I really think they look like The Beastie Boys in that first photo.

OK, so I think that this one is the same bird as in this one, because there's a particular look on his face that you don't see on the others.

That look can be described as "heh heh mah foot heh heh heh."

I'm not gonna lie, the looks of horror on their faces pretty much matches the look of horror on my interior face all of the time.

Nobody has told them they get to spend the rest of their life murdering pigeons. They'll cheer up when they get the news.

I showed this one to my boss and we agreed that these are the faces we both make when he comes into my office to ask me to do a thing.
